6:02 am
red on highway 4 westbound highway 4 traffic is going to be slow. stop and go through that construction zone. it's slowing down over the hill. 680 looks good from the benicia bridge to the walnut creek interchange. let's two back to the desk. right now people at the september 11th memorial at ground zero in new york are marking the moment the second plane struck the south tower of the world trade center 14 years ago. actually there will be a moment of silence in just about a minute from now. and then there will be a moment of ringing after that moment of silence was observed. hijackers took over and crash into that south tower at 6:03 in the morning our time.
6:03 am
17 minutes earlier the american airlines flight 11 had struck the top of the north tower. again you're taking a live look at new york city this morning. this is ground zero. they are reading the names of the 3,000 names killed. it has been a time of reflection and hope this week at ground zero. tens of thousands of people have filed through the national september 11th memorial and museum in new york city. they are mourning the nearly 3,000 innocent lives lost 14 years ago but they say at the same time today they are also inspired by the resilience of the city and this entire country. >> it's a tribute to looking forward to the hope of the future and to all good things. but it's really a fist bump about we're back. >> construction also continues 14 years later at ground zero. three world trade center is a
6:04 am
skyscraper currently being built and expected to open in 2018. it will stand more than 80 stories tall and offer nearly 3 million square feet of office space. we'll show you this view that new yorkers were treated to to yesterday. ben sterner took this photo. the rainbow appears to be emerging and you can see there, it appears to be emerging from the world trade center. now this photo and other similar photos spread across social media and elicit many emotional responses. president obama also took part in a somber ceremony at the white house south lawn to commemorate the 9/11 attacks. the president and the first lady bowed their heads to a moment of silence. this is at 5:46 our time. that is again when that hijacked plane struck one of the world trade center towers. members of the white house staff were also at that ceremony. let's take you live now. this is the pentagon.
6:05 am
that flag was unfurled over the side at sunrise this morning. 184 people were killed there when the hijacked american airlines flight 77 crashed into that building. that happened at 6:37 our time. a private memorial ceremony is being held there today. our time is 6:05. there are also tributes today for the passengers of hijacked united flight 93. it crashed into a field in pennsylvania. the flight was on its way to san francisco. there are several bay area events today paying tribute to the victims. at 10:00 a.m. this morning, a ceremony will be held at the flight 93 memorial in union city. that memorial that was dedicated in 2007 was at sugar mill landing park. it features 40 large stones for each of the 40 people on that plane. and in shanksville,
6:06 am
pennsylvania a visitors center is open just in time for the 9/11 observances. family members and friends of the flight 93 victims were at a ceremony yesterday. the center has pictures of the 40 people who were on that plane and tells a story of how a group of passengers attacked the hijackers and forced the plane to go down in a grassy field instead of letting the hijackers crash that plane into their intended target washington, d.c.. >> people can come and learn about the individuals and their collective actions and learn about the history of the day. there is a sense of satisfaction knowing that their story will be preserved here. >> hundreds of people gathered last night at the memorial for a lantern ceremony in a silent procession as you see there. they left candle lanterns at the wall of names. san francisco firefighters will be paying tribute to the first responders who lost their lives at the world trade center. mayor ed lee is going to join
6:07 am
fire chief joann hayes white at fire station 7. that is in the mission. there will be a ceremony that starts in about 40 minutes from now add 6:45 when -- at 6:45. firefighters will also read the names of the 343 new york city firefighters that were killed on that day 14 years ago. when that ceremony happens we'll take you there live. one of the ways people are choosing to pay tribute to those that died on september 11th is by participating in a day of service. in the south bay hundreds of people are planning to do just that. janine de la vega is joining us live from san jose where firefighters at station one just held that service. >> reporter: they did. that happened 15 minutes ago. firefighters came out and they held a service and a moment of silence. they rang this memorial bell here to remember the firefighters who paid the ultimate price by doing their job and a public service. that is what is behind the push
6:08 am
today to get people to pay tribute by giving back. >> doing something great makes me feel good as well. it makes me realize i have the power to change things and there is really nothing stopping me. >> reporter: this video was put together by in 2009 the federal government designated 9/11 as a day of service and remembrance. since then 40 million people have participated in volunteering. they remember the people that volunteered help search for the victim on september 11th and they want to keep that spirit of compassion alive. there is a variety of ways you can get started. one way is to give blood. the red cross is encouraging people to do that as a good deed. and in san jose eight different nonprofits are miles an hour this day of service and -- are participating in this day of
6:09 am
service. they will be joined by local leaders later this morning. they will be holding a rally encouraging people to go attache do a good steeded and volunteer. claudine. >> we saw some of that service live when it was happening down in san jose and it was very emotion that. we saw some people getting emotional. is there anything happening during the day as well? because certainly these remembrances are happening throughout the morning. >> reporter: yeah. i did ask them about that. and they said they are actually going to be flying a flag. you can see what it looks like. the banners. and it talks about remembering 9/11 and their fallen brothers from new york city and those are going to be onen each of the engine's today. they will be displaying that. so if you go -- if you are in san jose and you happen to see them, take a look out there for them. and also don't forget to thank a firefighter. we always remember that out pouring of love and support
6:10 am
that on those days after 9/11 and even over that past year and so it's just something that also makes them feel good and appreciated. >> you know what, i'm glad you said that. i do remember that so profoundly in those days after 9/11 and how many people walked up and just said thank you. certainly if we see is that today, that will be tremendous. thank all first responders. thank you. >> reporter: yeah. >> all right. and we are going to have coverage of the anniversary of the 9/11 throughout mornings on 2. including more on the local ceremonies happening this morning. time is 6:10. a daly city man was arrested in san francisco after a bizarre stand off in the water near at & t park. it started at 4:30 yesterday afternoon. the chp tried to stop a man that was riding on the shoulder of highway 280. investigators say the motorcyclist hit a car and then he ran away from the scene and
6:11 am
jumped into the water at fourth and berry streets. a police jet ski and a small boat chased after him as he swam in the water until he eventually climbed up on to a pier. a police crisis negotiator talked to the man. finally he surrendered around 7:00 p.m.. >> as it was getting dark, it was very important to us that we were able to work with him and get him to surrender peacefully because you don't want rescue swimmers in the water after dark. you don't want your boat down there after dark. it's dangerous for the suspect, it's dangerous for the fire department. >> 20-year-old noah was taken to the hospital for medical evaluation. he is facing charges of evading a police officer, resisting arrest, and hit and run. a man that led sheriffs deputies on a wild police chase and ran into a restaurant while
6:12 am
holding a gun is dead this morning. the suspect stole the car and jumped out of the car firing shots and then ran into the restaurant. the gunmen for -- a man accused of plotting to bomb a 9/11 memorial. coming up at 6:30 we'll tell you about the event he was targeting and how the fbi was able to arrest him. >> plus trouble for the tiburon ferry. we'll tell you about the financial problems that the ferry service is facing and why it may have to scale back service. we'll also tell you about the take over that could be coming here. >> good morning. we are looking at the east bay commute and right now we're seeing 680 looking good passing the mission boulevard exit heading south. >> is the weather looking good? well for some, not for all. we have changes on the way. we'll see if that means no more 100s for those inland temps.
6:13 am
6:14 am
6:15 am
welcome back to mornings on 2. hundreds of firefighters battling a big wild fire near sacramento. it's threatening 1500 homes. it's called the bute fire. it tripled in size to almost 15,000 acres. at least six homes have been destroyed. people have been evacwatt -- evacuated. this fire son-in-law 10%
6:16 am
contained. high winds and fire conditions are making it tough to put out those flames. federal money has been authorized by fema to fight the butte fire. the cause of the fire is still under investigation. we've got to talk about the changes that could soon be coming to ferry service. the tiburon ferry has service financial problems and there may be a takeover. alex savidge is is joining us live now with how commuters can be effected and you know depending on what happens they will be effected. >> reporter: they will be. a lot of the commuters we talked to they are concerned about the possibility of service being scaled back. so right now the tiburon ferry makes 7 round trips a day. it leaves from the dock here in downtown tiburon and heads over to san francisco. seven times a day. but potentially they may have to cut back to one round trip a day. that is unless the golden gate bridge district comes in and decides to take over here. according to a report in the
6:17 am
san francisco chronicle, the blue and gold fleet which operates the tiburon ferry is facing rising operating costs and has an aging vessel. they used just one vessel nicknamed the zalinski and it needs to be replaced. and later on today, the golden gate bridge district board will be deciding whether to move forward with a potential take over of the tiburon ferry. regular passengers are hoping a deal gets worked out that can prevent any service cut backs. >> i'm certainly sympathetic to that situation. i do hope that things can be worked out though because the ferry has been very valuable for me and i know a lot of other folks. i hope they are able to find a way to continue it. >> reporter: the golden gate ferries they make runs between marin county and san francisco. right now there are only stops
6:18 am
in usa lee toe and larkspur. the board of directors will meet later on today and see if they want to move forward in this process. they obviously have to study the cost of a take over. the availability of boats and also labor issues will play into things as well. this privately operated ferry, the tiburon ferry that many use to get into san francisco today could change hands. but obviously commuters are hoping they don't scale back the number of trip that's ferry makes every day. >> i would imagine if it's okay that someone else runs it but don't take away from it. >> i think people are okay if it changes hands certainly but they want to make sure that they can still catch that ferry when they need it. >> keep those boats running. time 16:18. you're watching highway 24 and everything else. >> that is right. we're having a little bit better of a commute this morning on 24, on 4 and 680
6:19 am
nearby. but it's still slow. it's nothing like it would be on a sunday. but it's better than it was yesterday at this time any way as you head on to highway 24. also looking at the commute at the bay bridge toll plaza, that is filled up. it's about a 20 minute delay before you make it on to the span with no major problems. we're also looking at san francisco. the traffic looks good there. 880 southbound getting a little bit of slow traffic. 6:19 let's go to steve. thank you, sir. we do have some fog on the coast. inland temps though still looking at 90s and 100s. tropical clouds on the move. we've had dry air for awhile. went up a little bit yesterday. beautiful sunrise here. it will give us a cloudy to mostly cloudy friday night into saturday. before i get to the weather, instead of fog and heat, martin
6:20 am
took this photo on a fog free wednesday at 9:00 p.m. at natural bridges state beach. it is an award winner. beautiful shot. something other than heat related. i'm a little loopy from the heat. 104 in gilroy. that was a record. 103 the old mark in 1976. fog is fair but not making much of a push. 50s to 70s. 55 half-moon bay to 70. west, southwest 16. we'll see if that continues to ramp up past 20 then you can count the minutes until the cooling kicks in. if it drops below 10 then we'll have another hot day. they will be here on saturday. temperatures will start to come down. especially on sunday. 60s and 70s and 80s around the bay. and 90s and 100s. it will be gradually cooler as we go into the weekend.
6:21 am
cloudy and mostly cloudy. monday and tuesday areas that are now 104-105 will be in the 70s. >> maybe some rain next thursday north of sonoma. >> really? >> you just have to survive the next couple of days. 11 candidates are now getting ready for next week's presidential debate. coming up in 20 minutes could mean other republicans are getting ready to target donald trump. new bills regulating california medical marijuana industry. the compromised reached late last night by state lawmakers.

6:26 am
leadership of the world, ordinary people will triumph. >> the governor vetoed one bill that made it to his desk. it would have banned low flying drones over private property to protect privacy. governor brown said he thinks the issue of drones does merit careful consideration but he felt that this bill could have had unintended legal consequences. time is 6:26. late last night state lawmakers reached a compromise on three bills to regulate medical marijuana. it would set up a bureau of medical marijuana regulation to over see every aspect of the industry. from pot farms and medical clinics to retail distribution. both the state senate and the assembly plan to vote on it before the legislature adjourns for the year later today. another effort to make san francisco streets safer. the campaign that appears to be paying off at four dangerous san francisco intersections.
